rufusSMsq.jpgThe first single from the new Rufus Wainwright album hit the Internet this week. Its called "Going to a Town" from "Release The Stars" (due May 15th).

Insider tip: Rufus will performing next week at a party to celebrate the Sundance Channel's new series, "The Green." And this fall he'll be at the Hollywood Bowl with a full orchestra, performing the songs that Judy Garland performed at the same venue in 1961.

Whatever happened to that documentary about his Carnegie Hall show directed by Sam Mendes?

    I heard Mendes was so disheartened by Tully's blog post that he's pulled everything he's ever done from release and dedicated his life to topiary.
